Local cartoonist Bill Fortune recently launched a website featuring his original cartoon strip about LDS missionaries.
Fortune began drawing the cartoons in 1988 when his late son Doug was serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Tampa, Florida.
“He would write home about his experiences,” Fortune said. “So I developed a cartoon, and I named these characters after him and his companion.”
Doug’s first companion’s last name was Carroll, so Fortune began calling his cartoon strip “Elders D & C.”
